PRICED CATALOGUES 


of Coins and Medals. 


—~ 





A‘ TER each sale these catalogues are 
issued with the prices realised printed 
in the margin opposite each lot, thus giving 


at a glance a reliable guide to values. 


The final test of value must always be 
auction prices rather than the figures given 
in books of reference, for changing times 
and fashions soon render the latter obsolete 


and misleading. 


On the average we issue twelve Coin and 
Medal catalogues a year, some of which 
are usually of sales of important collections. 
The priced catalogues are posted to 
subscribers as soon as ready, usually about 
a week after the date of sale and the 


subscription 1s
